Nissan has released the official pricing for the 2021 Altima and customers are expected to be pleased that the sedan’s base price remains the same.
It’s not just the base price that is unchanged, though, as the Altima is returning for another year with hardly anything to offer since its last redesign three years ago. The most Nissan could do is shuffle around its trim levels for the 2021 lineup.
For one, the SR model moves above the SV variant. This makes the order as follows: S, SV, SR, SL, and Platinum.
With the S model priced at just over $25,000, buyers can enjoy a front-wheel-drive setup powered by a 2.5-liter inline-four engine that delivers up to 188 horsepower. It also comes with a driver-assist package that includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, rear automated emergency braking, and rear sonar.
For the SV, SR, and SL trims, the same 2.5-liter inline-four is included, but customers have the option to choose between a front-wheel-drive and an all-wheel-drive. The SV retails for $26,325 ($27,725 with AWD), followed by the SR at $27,125 ($28,525 with AWD), then the SL at $30,915 ($32,315 with AWD).
The Platinum, which is no longer offered with the optional 2.0-liter variable compression turbo engine, tops the range at $35,025. It is offered with front-wheel-drive and an all-wheel drive, plus a choice between the 2.5-liter inline-four and Nissan’s variable compression production engine.
All variants of the 2021 Nissan Altima are now available at dealerships in the US.
